VAN VICKER, ANGELA OKORIE TO HOST NAFCA 2012
The 34-year-old Ghanaian born actor, who started his active acting career in 2003 with Ghanaian TV series ‘Sun City‘; will be hosting the event with Nigerian counterpart Angela Okorie-a Nollywood actress.
According to the organisers of the event, NAFCA ‘is an award ceremony in North America for the African Movie industry worldwide and it serves as an award of merit for distinctive achievement’. Also the essence of the award is to boost movies and film makers from across Africa.
The two-day event which holds every second week in September will begin with a Nollywood summit, movie premiere and an after party on Saturday, September 15 at the Carolina Museum of Art, US. The awards proper will hold on Sunday, September, 16, 2012 at the Carolina Theatre Durham, North Carolina, US.
Organisers say some percentage of the tickets sales and sponsorship grants will be donated to North Carolina International Mission – a charity organisation fighting hunger and building schools in Africa.
